If we want to reduce our environmental impact, build resiliency in our community and improve food security, it's up to us to make it happen. In many North American communities, the instrument of change is ... grain. Grain is the perfect metaphor for how we've lost control of our food supply, and with it the skills and tools to feed ourselves. Uprisings shows how communities can take back their power by reviving local grain production to improve food security, local economies and the environment.

Profiles of 10 unique community models demonstrating how local grain production is making a difference are rounded out by step-by-step instructions for small-scale grain production that will turn any community into a hotbed of revolution. Learn about:

  • How locally grown wheat, barley and other grains can impact a community
  • How to start a community grain project from scratch
  • How to plant, grow, harvest, thresh, winnow and store your grain
  • How to use whole and sprouted grains in your kitchen
The new self-sufficiency is community sufficiency. Uprisings offers a wealth of practical advice to inspire and empower anyone interested in local initiatives to develop a community grain-growing model tailored for their unique needs and resources.
